Recent blast of cold weather allows Wintergreen to utilize the snowmaking system to the max
WINTERGREEN, VIRGINIA – Wintergreen Resort plans to open for the 2022-23 winter season on Tuesday, December 20 for skiing and snowboarding from 9:00am – 5:00pm. Dobie will be the first trail to open serviced by the Blue Ridge Express, a six-person detachable chairlift. Snow tubing opened for the winter season on Friday, November 25.
Wintergreen Resort’s General Manager, Jay Gamble commented on the start of the season, “We couldn’t be more pleased to open the mountain for skiing and riding on Tuesday, and it is all thanks to our Mountain Operations team who took full advantage of every hour of snowmaking opportunity. Those wet mild November days did not dampen our team’s spirit or efforts as they were at the ready when the cold temps arrived. We look forward to continuing our aggressive snowmaking efforts with more terrain coming soon.”
Mission: Four’dable Quad Packs of unrestricted lift tickets are available online through December 19 for $299. Lift tickets from December 20 through 22 will be $69 for adults and $49 for juniors and seniors. Regular season lift ticket pricing starts Friday, December 23.
